Paris Fashion Week SS20 Moodboard

The inspirations directly from the catwalks

Paris Fashion Week SS20 Moodboard  The inspirations directly from the catwalks

What will we remember of this Paris Fashion Week? There are three images that have "broken" Instagram in these French days: the Meteor Bag by Off-White (more than a simple accessory, it's now a viral meme), the YouTuber on the Chanel runway then steered off the stage by Gigi Hadid, the model who closed Maison Margiela's show. Leon Dame drew the attention of the Grand Palais not for his sailor's look by Galliano, but for his theatrical walk on the notes of Work It (Soulwax Remix) by Marie Davidson. Such a bizarre moment that even Anna Wintour smiled. 

Who knows if the feared director of Vogue US liked the other shows as well. From Dior and Alexander McQueen who recreated the atmosphere of famous gardens, from Louis Vuitton with its mash-up between the 70s and the Belle Epoque to Miu Miu's neo-realism, from Balenciaga's workwear to Lemaire's chic minimalism, each brand tried to dress next spring-summer 2020 following different inspirations and moods. This time, as happens every season, there was a common element, an item from the past that designers suggested as the next must-have: the panier, that is "a cage frame made of whale bones, which dramatically amplified the size of the hips, keeping the front and back of the dress quite flat". Loewe, Balenciaga, Thom Browne, Comme des Garçons have recalled the silhouette of the awkward accessory worn in 18th century France, as artists such as Galliano, McQueen, Westwood, Dolce&Gabbana had already done in previous collections.
